Dressel goes 142 in the IM and nobody notices!?!?!


And he split 23.3 on the end….


I’ve never seen a sub 24 free split before, and he went 23.3


I know! And it’s supposed to be, what, his 4th of 5th best event? Crazy

My apologies, I thought you asked when we still stop hearing about him. Regardless, my point still remains
